poll, said they had just voted for mitt romney. 35% for rick santorum. 12% for newt gingrich. 8% for ron paul. remember. this is still the early exit polls. very soon we're going to be getting more numbers. we're not yet able to make a projection based on these first round, second round of these exit polls. we're getting more. let me walk over to john king and explain what's going on. no projection yet. but it seems at least according to the early exit polls information, the new numbers in the exit polls are still coming in. looks like it's going to be a good night for mitt romney. >> every reason to believe that governor romney will win the state of illinois. if you've been with us through past primary nights, the people who just finished voting talking to the exit polls now. santorum does better in that lastaway. and often senator santorum has overperformed his last poll numbers. >> we're being cautious. >> we'd rather get it right than wrong. we can tell things if we look at the electorate today. we've seen this in some other states. nearly 4 in 10 voters today say beating pr

. but our decision desk tells us vermont and virginia are too close to call. and, get this, mitt romney is in a tight race with ron paul in each of those states. of course, rick santorum and newt gingrich didn't even qualify for the virginia primary so it was just romney and paul on the ballot. our exit polls show mitt romney is generally winning among voters who say their top concern is the economy but not everywhere. and rick santorum is leading among voters who say they want a candidate with a strong moral character. but that's also not across the board. much more on the exit polls in just a moment. again, fox news now projects newt gingrich has won his former home state of georgia. 419 delegates up for grabs across 10 super tuesday states tonight. that's more than the total that need to win the nomination. less than a half hour away from the polls closing in the biggest race of the night in the state of ohio. so stay tuned. first, to campaign carl cammeron live at romney headquarters in boston. carl, what are we learning from the early returns? >> well, we see from georgia that newt

in these two states, we are already impacting the national debate on a scale that all of romney's ad money hasn't achieved. and we're doing it because ideas matter. being able to make a principle case matters. the reagan tradition of visionary conservatism was based on proverbs and the deep believe that without vision people perish. and i believe we need a visionary leader who is prepared to talk about a dramatically better future with dramatically more jobs, more energy, and a safer and stronger america. that's the key to winning this fall. not all this petty baloney, but the really big choices. and as i went around both states talking about $2.50 gasoline, having all sorts of folks in the elite media saying that's not possible, and finally on saturday in the "wall street journal" they wrote a piece that is entitled "newt gingrich is right about gasoline." and he walked through step by step why it's possible. and the fact is it's very possible. and then yesterday, steven moore reported in the "wall street journal," numbers are so amaz g amazing, the fact i want to about substance is what make

just say off the top also, we're actually at a mitt romney event waiting for him to come in. but to your point about rick santorum and those comments about english only, it is something that enflames passions on both sides. in terms of conservative circles, fred, conservatives feel like english should be the language of the land. it is just one of the enduring conservative ideals, right? and when he said that in puerto rico, he was then asked about it a little later and he stood by it, didn't really back down from it too much, but a lot of people in puerto rico and beyond, latinos back here in the u.s., it raised a lot of eyebrows. one puerto rican official said that it was a very limiting and narrow view and when you couple that, fred, couple that with some people who feel like republicans have been taking some very hard line anti-latino -- a hard line against issues that latinos care about, take illegal immigration, a lot of republicans say they want to deport illegal aliens or people who have been living here in the u.s. for a while, sonia sotomayor, the supreme court jus

of ohio has mitt romney at 37 and santorum at 36. it is neck and neck. of course, newt gingrich and ron paul bringing up the rear with 15 and 11% respectively. georgia, ppp again, but gingrich has a huge hometown advantage leading the pack. as you can see 47 of the 24%. however, there are some conflicting poll numbers that if you stick around, you will be able to see some of that. santorum and paul of course both third and fourth. this is what the delegate count looks like. a candidate needs 1,144 delegates to win and that's exactly what this shows right here, but you can see look at romney has 203. tomorrow, as you see, there is over 400. this is not going to be done. according to the associated press, mitt romney has that exact number 203 but all of these contests tomorrow all of them are proportional and that means that none are winner-take-all. so that means no one is going to come away with a clear -- as the clear winner in delegates. no one is going to have a tipping point number. we may see a surprise in momentum if santorum wins ohio if ro
